This paper reviews iron deficiency and vitamin A deficiency, two major micronutrient deficits which have been causally linked to geohelminthoses. It explores the relative benefits of vitamin A supplementation for children with ascariasis infection and iron supplementation for children with trichuriasis and hookworm infections, with and without deworming, and consider whether there are circumstances in which deworming programmes should be complemented by micronutrient programs.
